The Whitening of NOLA makes GOP Gleeful
As someone who has has lived in and loved New Orleans... this RACIST proposal/ land grab by the RACIST Rep Richard Baker goes beyond the pale (ya know him, he said this about NOLA's Ninth ward: "We finally cleaned up public housing in New Orleans. We couldn't do it, but God did." The proposal? The "plan" will pay landowners 60% of their equity before Hurricane Katrina. Not 60% of the land value; 60% of the equity. It will pay 60% of the remaining loan to the mortgage holders. It will turn around and then sell the land to developers. And the whitening of NOLA begins. May the spirits of the dearly departed bitchslap these white devils asap.
